Playing Rosalind, Timbuktu reviewed, Literary Festivals

As a new production of As You Like It opens at the Globe Theatre in London, Michelle Terry talks about taking on the role of Rosalind, arguably Shakespeare's meatiest female role. Actors Niamh Cusack and Juliet Stevenson who've played her in the past also describe the pleasures and challenges of playing her. Timbuktu was nominated for Best Foreign Film at the Oscars and depicts what happens to one family when the city is overrun by fanatical jihadis.
